en-EU-NIS and Essential Services Providers

08/05/2020

Many organisations, active in energy, transport, gas, supply and distribution of drinking water), banking (although with many exceptions), infrastructure and service providers for the financial market, healthcare (hospitals) and digital service providers are subject to Network Information Security legislations of the countries they operate in.

It is also possible that your organization has interactions with the provider(s) of essential services. In many cases, such an organization will demand the same level of safety from its partners and suppliers.

Why is business continuity management important in EU-NIS?

The NIS irrefutably requires Member States to ensure that providers of essential services take appropriate measures to prevent and minimize the effects of incidents that affect the security of the network and Information systems used to provide those essential services to guarantee the continuity of these services.

The goal of this guideline is of course to prevent or limit incidents. This must ensure that the continuity of the service provider is assured.

Continuity management (Business Continuity) is dealt with explicitly 14 times and has therefore become an unmistakable element in what is (from now on) legally regarded as "good security".
